God’s exceeding glory

John 2:10-11 “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!” This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory.

Over the centuries, theologians have posited explanations on God’s glory and tried to articulate it as best as they can. However, no matter how good their expressions can be or how acquainted they are with His presence, it is impossible to express God’s glory adequately in words.

And here is a reason why: our limited capacities can only go so far in grasping and expressing His nature.

This was a wedding setting in Cana where the wedding couple ran out of wine and were presented with a possible embarrassing moment. Jesus’ mother, Mary, who was already acquainted with His ability to do the impossible, approached Him in the bid to turn the situation around.

The powerful part of the entire episode was not so much that the water got turned into wine; what was intriguing was the fact that He conjured better wine than the best that was already out! He did not just turn a situation around, but exceeded what was necessary in expectation. The verse tells us that in performing that sign, He manifested His glory.

Theology-to-go When God manifests His glory in turning our situations around, He will exceed our every expectation in how we think He would come through for us. Don’t just trust Him to come through for you, get excited because He will exceed your every expectation in the breakthrough!
